Word Eternal That Shall Eer Endure

Word eternal that shall e’er endure,
Lamp to light us on our pathway;
True foundation ever strong, secure,
Blessed, blessed Book divine.

Through all the ages gleaming with a wondrous ray,
Lo! Thy promises endure for aye;
Upon our pathway ever as a beacon shine,
O blessed Bible, O Book divine.

Spirit sword that e’er the vict’ry brings,
Compass pointing to the harbor;
Royal message from the King of kings,
Blessed, blessed Book divine. [Refrain]

Hope’s true anchor that shall hold for aye,
Bread of life our souls sustaining;
Thou our comfort and our strength and stay,
Blessed, blessed Book divine. [Refrain]
